Mini version of the classic book. Peter is looking for blueberries for his mother’s birthday but he can’t find a single one. Suddenly he feels a light tap on his shoe, and a strange and magical experience begins. Peter explores the world of the blueberry and cranberry children from a miniature size, discovering lots about the natural world that he didn’t know before. This is one of Elsa Beskow’s best-known and best-loved books.
‘First published in Sweden in 1901, Peter in Blueberry Land still maintains its original appeal. This is an enchanting story, perfect for reading aloud before bedtime.’
— Booktrusted (www.booktrusted.com) ‘When Peter cannot find any berries, the King of Blueberry Land shrinks him. The children I have read this book to have loved this cheerful and exciting story. They have been fascinated at the thought of being made tiny for the day.’

‘Look out for the insects and small creatures included in the pictures that juicily illustrate Peter’s travels.’
